DIY hacks to create Instagram and Pinterest-worthy Easter baskets

1) Pick a tall focal point, such as a classic chocolate bunny or a Jelly Belly gift box, and add sweets and other homemade items to frame that piece.

2) First fill the basket with bubble wrap, leftover newspaper or floral foam to create a solid base to secure treats onto and save on the amount of decorative “grass” used.

3) Secure items in the basket with clear tape, so that chocolate bunny or Jelly Belly Spring Gift Box stays in place. Also tape candy bars and smaller items onto lollipop sticks or skewers to make them stand upright.

4) Whether it’s a basket for a girl, boy, mom or dad, make it all about them by adding something that references their favorite activity or candy.

5) Personalize your basket with a few DIY items or a miniature potted plant.
